It's no longer necessary to haul bulky phrase books in luggage, carry a "universal translator" device, or to buy multiple phrase book applications. iPhraseBook replaces all of these in a single application. Simply switch between the installed languages with the tap of a button. Presented with beautiful custom artwork, iPhraseBook automatically updates the display to match the currently selected language. Additional languages may be purchased within the application and are immediately unlocked including audio. No further downloads are required.

Phrases are logically organized into dozens of topics, including communications, practical information, shopping, health & beauty, business, accommodations, getting around, eating and drinking, and more. Mark important or frequently-used phrases as favorites. Favorites are indexed by topic for easy access.

Phrase content can be conveniently searched in any installed language. iPhraseBook uses a proprietary matching algorithm to optimize search results. iPhraseBook tracks the last 100 searches so previous searches can be repeated with a single tap.

iPhraseBook is a universal application and is optimized for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch screens.
